ClearWay Minnesota is presenting a new webinar series in July, August and September 2020. As a life-limited organization that will close down next year, much of our research and programmatic work is coming to an end. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight our work by offering free webinars. Recordings and slides from previous presentations in the series are posted at the bottom of this page.
The topics are:
Nineteen Years of Helping Minnesotans Quit
Presented by Randi Lachter, M.P.H, Director of Tobacco Treatment Programs
July 29 at Noon CST
Strategies for helping people quit commercial tobacco have changed over the past 19 years, from a focus solely on treatment delivery to a comprehensive, population-based approach that better fit commercial tobacco users’ needs and included treatment, systems change, community engagement and policy. This webinar will provide a brief history of that evolution, discuss how we implemented this approach and report how we measured our impact. Lessons learned will also be discussed.
LAAMPP Institute: Advocacy Leadership Beyond the Fellowship
Presented by CoCo Villaluz, Associate Director of Health Equity Programs, with Ani Ryan Koch, Vayong Moua and Sandy Johnson
August 19 at Noon CST
The Leadership and Advocacy Institute to Advance Minnesota’s Parity for Priority Populations (LAAMPP) is a cross-cultural leadership program designed to build the capacity of Minnesota’s priority populations to effectively respond to tobacco control and health justice issues. Priority populations are defined here as the Black (African and African American), American Indian, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Latinx, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) communities. Historically, priority populations have been underrepresented within the mainstream tobacco control movement and are disproportionately impacted by commercial tobacco. Former LAAMPP Fellows and Coaches will highlight lessons learned during their fellowship to their work they are currently doing now. Highlights from their cohorts and policy successes will be shared.
Webinar access information will be provided to those who have registered prior to the Webinar date.

Operation Impact: How to Set Goals, Measure Change and Leave a Legacy
Ann St. Claire, M.P.H, Director of Evaluation and Survey Research
Presented July 16, 2020
ClearWay Minnesota was challenged to address the harms of tobacco on the people of Minnesota over 25 years with $200 million. As a life-limited organization, we have saved Minnesota thousands of lives and billions of dollars. In this webinar, we will highlight key steps ClearWay Minnesota took to set long-term goals, monitor progress and ultimately leave a legacy of change. These strategies can be useful to other organizations or initiatives seeking to define success and achieve meaningful impact.
